I played this game a grand total of 6 days and I wouldn't recommend this game to any self-respecting MUD player. If you had asked me when I first started playing this MUD, I would've said it was the best game I've ever played, but I've since been proven wrong.
First off, let me say that there is false advertising on the description of dartmud. Your equipment is not saved, it is dropped when you logoff. Roleplaying is not encouraged, it is required. This is also not a newbie friendly game.
Don't be misled if someone tells you it is a free game, because it is not. In order to register, you're not allowed to use any freemailers so if your Internet Service Provider doesn't provide you with an email, then don't bother playing because your character will be deleted from the system soon after it is created.
Most MUDs don't allow pking of new members since they're just getting used to the game. This MUD allows it and sometimes even encourages it. Be warned, if you've never played a MUD before, this isn't the best game to start out with.
When you logoff the game, your items are dropped wherever you logoff. This means that if you don't buy a room at an inn, then your items will be lost or stolen. Unfortunately, new people are frequent victims of stolen items since they can't afford to rent a room to keep their items safe.
Also, if you challenge the creators in any way, shape, or form for any reason, big or small, then expect your character to be deleted. I'm guessing the creators don't like to be proven wrong, so even if they are wrong, don't say anything about it to them or you will be punished. The punishment usually does not fit the crime, as in most MUDs, and there is no 'innocent until proven guilty' rule. The creators take no time to investigate the matter, and to save time, will merely ban you and imprison your character for life.
All in all, this game is very realistic, but do not presume that new players get any special treatment or information like other MUDs.
